WILLIAMSTOWN, MA –The Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute’s annual free outdoor summer concert series kicks off on July 6 with the spectacular three-part harmonies of Red Molly. Bring your family and friends, a picnic, blankets, and lawn chairs to the Clark for this popular Berkshire tradition, held on Tuesday evenings in July at 6:00 pm. Barbeque fare will be available for purchase and the galleries will remain open until 6:00 pm on concert evenings. In the event of rain, the concerts will be held in the auditorium. Concert admission is free.

Red Molly consistently brings concert-goers to their feet with stunning three-part harmonies, crisp musicianship and a warm, engaging stage presence. They have earned a devoted and ever-widening fan base, and have begun to tour nationally. Laurie MacAllister, Abbie Gardner and Carolann Solebello have a lot of fun on stage, and it’s contagious. The Boston Globe says: “Everything Red Molly sings is delivered with tick-tight arrangements, crystalline vocals, and caramel harmonies. But what is most striking is the ardor they bring to everything they do, whether snuggling into the sweet parochialism of an old spiritual, or the gritty pathos of a Gillian Welch tune. They come on less like stars strutting for their minions than pals sharing their favorite songs.”

In July 2006, Red Molly’s first full-length CD, Never Been to Vegas (2006) quickly climbed into the Top 30 on the Radio & Records Americana chart, a rare accomplishment for an independent release, and listeners of WUMB radio Boston voted the CD one of the Top 10 CDs of 2006. Their latest release, Love and Other Tragedies (2008), is their first full-length studio album. The single "Summertime" was the #1 song on Folk DJ in July of 2008, and the CD was listed in the Top 100 Albums for 2008 by the Americana Music Association, spent ten weeks in the TOP 15 on the Radio and Records Americana chart, reached #3 on the Roots Music Report, and entered the Folk DJ Top Albums list at #1.

The summer concert series is supported in part by Williamstown Savings Bank.

The Clark is located at 225 South Street in Williamstown, Massachusetts. The galleries are open Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm (daily in July and August). Admission June 1 through October 31 is $15 for adults, free for children 18 and younger, members, and students with valid ID. Admission is free November through May.
